Description

Crack pipes in the hallway and dealers on the doorstep form part of Murella's everyday life; one where she must step over the addicts and prostitutes on her welcome mat in order to take her children to school. Cas, long term sidekick and fierce pragmatist, confronts everything head on while spitting home truths at every opportunity. Between their two realities, battling challenging circumstances, they still find room for humour.

It also seems there is room for intervention. Davenport is an uncompromising scientist of acid wit frustrated by professional constraints. Monroe, his downtrodden junior, is fast becoming bored of playing Robin to his Batman. An alliance is formed when into this equation comes a self-serving individual with radical views on social reform.

Two ordinary women leading their lives at the extremes of society. Three men seeking to push the boundaries of science and politics. Block is a novel look at power and powerlessness, crime and corruption. This is a story of dual identities where everyone's limits are being tested.

A percentage of all sales of this book will be donated to the BBC Children in Need charity which provides grants to projects in the UK for disadvantaged children and young people.

Customer Reviews

A melting pot of ideas, stuffed with ideas and imagination - Class!

Scientists and politicians collude to impose the future on the impotent while their subjects engage in the grind of soul-eroding battles with the bureaucratic monoliths of the public sector against the backdrop of crime and drugs on Britain's estates. This is juxtaposed with vivid comic book flavoured meanderings into fantasy, nightmare and farce.
